Japanese tattoos and writing are a tenuous relationship, but stick with me. I have my reasons. I love japanese tattoos. I love them so much that I have a tattoo design that I want so bad, but I haven’t done it yet because it is a big tattoos and tattoo’s aren’t cheap. It is what I would call my bucket list tattoo. I have to accomplish a couple writer related goals before I can get it.
